I've got a couple of sweet projects to share with you today as part of Papertrey Ink's Sr. Design Team challenge. We were asked to revisit the Signatures Series stamp sets and come up with some unique creations to inspire you.
I combined my love of paper-crafting and stamping with my love of fabric and stitching. For this first project, I used the Signature Series: Flower Mini stamp set and stamped the flower image on muslin using Classic Kraft ink. I then used three strands of pink embroidery floss and just followed the curve of the letters. I then hand cut the flower from the muslin and attached it to a Vintage Cream felt envelope cut using the Tiny Envelope die. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was stamped on a die cut using the Fillable Frames #10 die and stamped with the Fillable Frames #10 set, Classic Kraft and Sweet Blush ink. The Simple Chartreuse felt leaves were cut using the Sending You die.
Then...one thing led to another, and well, I think sweet little felt envelopes should have wings, don't you? So, I decided to show you how to use this little creation as a jump start to create a beautiful package. I wrapped a small box (cause we all know that good things come in small packages) in a brown paper bag stamped with the Signature Series: Flower Mini stamp set and Vintage Cream ink. A couple of strands of Rustic Cream button twine were wrapped around the box and tied in a messy bow and then the mini envelope was attached using a small clothespin...super easy but very memorable, I think.
I then wanted to try this same technique using the Signature Series: Butterfly Mini stamp set, muslin, and Aqua Mist ink and love how soft and sweet it turned out. Stamping on fabric is so easy and creates very unexpected results.
Lots of fun...hope you try a little flying envie and hand-stitched embellishment of your own!
